A trust is an arrangement that involves money owned by one party, but managed by a second party for the benefit of a third party. Trusts are becoming popular vehicles of protection and can be used during a person's lifetime, in the event of incapacitation and after death.
Through our experienced representation, clients can structure and arrange trusts in many different ways, including:
- Charitable trusts: Assets can be transferred to a charity.
- Education trusts: A college fund can be created for grandchildren.
- Land trusts: Land can be protected from development in perpetuity.
- Living trusts: The process of probate can be avoided along with any possible disputes and fees.
- Special needs trusts: A disabled family member or child can receive ongoing financial support.
